August 10, 2018: FAA Proposes $126,000 Civil Penalty Against RAE-I.T. Asset Management for Alleged Hazardous Materials Violations

The Federal Aviation Administration is proposing $126,000 civil penalty against RAE-I.T. Asset Management, LLC for Hazardous Materials Regulations violations.
The Ocala, FL based company is accused of offering a shipment of 220 lithium-ion cell phone batteries to UPS that were improperly packaged for air transport. The company did not take proper steps to package the batteries in a way that would prevent sparks or dangerous evolution of heat.
Additionally, RAE-I.T. Management did not provide a shipper’s declaration of dangerous goods or the emergency response information with the shipment and the package was not properly classed, described, packaged, marked, or labeled.
The company has 30 days from the time they receive the FAA’s enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
